For this weekâ€™s Thousander Club update:
Game Hours: 262.25 / 1000
Game Ideas: 616 / 1000
Merry Christmas! Apparently I was off a bit in my calculations, as there is almost another week to go before the year’s end…hmm…
In any case, I managed to hit over 25% of my goal for the year, which isn’t too bad. It’s not very good compared to actually doing 1,000 hours, but it wasn’t bad.
Space Invaders is playable as a real game, but I am amazed at the long list of things I have left to do! There is no real animation to speak of, there are no menus or text, there is no way to get to a game over state, and you can’t restart from in-game.
Still, you can continue to shoot enemies for as long as you have ships left. There is no indicator, but you start with the standard three ships. If you lose them all, you need to shutdown the game and start it over if you want to continue playing.
